ECO-CONSOLIDATION

The eco-consolidating compound suitable for architectural and artistic assets

What are the alteration and degradation of stone surfaces, and how to defeat them?

NANOLAQ THE SOLUTION FOR YOU!

Completely Green, with no additives and no emission of toxic or environmentally polluting gases, dust or waste, thus respecting the health of operators.

NANOLAQ is a consolidating solution in the form of a suspension of calcium hydroxide nanoparticles dispersed in water, obtained according to an innovative and sustainable synthesis procedure. This can jeopardise the integrity of the original work or artefact. In such cases, it is necessary to intervene with consolidation techniques to restore the cohesion of the parts involved. 

IBIX Conservation in collaboration with the University of L’Aquila’s Spin Off SNAPTECH S.r.l. is able to offer and use a highly innovative, high performance consolidating product:

NANOLAQ

NANOLAQ is a consolidating

solution in the form of a suspension of calcium hydroxide nanoparticles dispersed in water

It guarantees the perfectly compatible consolidation of all substrates with a carbonate matrix (such as natural stone materials, historical mortars, plasters, frescoes, wall paintings, stuccoes), both indoors and outdoors, respecting the environment and original materials.
